lie. >> and the big panel weighs in on george w. bush's jaw-dropping new interview. >> eight years was awesome. and you know, i was famous and i was powerful. >> good to have you with us. thanks for watching. another day, another new plan of attack for the romney campaign. yesterday, it was the dart board mentality. today, it's the kitchen sink approach. >> his priority is not creating jobs for you. his priority is trying to keep his own job, and that's why he's going to lose it. he's out of touch, out of ideas, out of excuses. that's why in november we have to get him out of office. he divides us. he tried to diminish those who have been successful in one walk of life or another. it's simply wrong. >> to recap, president obama cares about his own job and not yours. he's out of touch and out of excuses. and he's a president who is just dividing america and tearing americans apart. you know, gone are the days when mitt romney would say something nice about president obama, that he's a nice guy. >> i think he's a nice person. i just don't think we can afford him any longer. >> conser
's the equiv lnlt of 2004, of democrats saying we're going to bring up george w. bush's alcoholism and the fact until the age of 40, he really didn't have any purpose in his life. well, that might have been relevant for some democrats, you might have wanted to dwell on that. but actually, by that point, he had invaded two countries. he had a record as president. if you want to go out and dislike this president, if you feel negative about him, there are plenty of things to grab on to. what does it do for people who are the gettable voters, the swing voters, the independent voters. they think this is completely off topic. go down this rabbit hole for the republicans. it won't take them any closer to landing a blow on a president, a sitting president they're going for, not a new guy running for nomination. >> yeah, bob shrum, when a campaign decides to go heavily negative in july, what does it tell you about the campaign? >> this is, in 2004, we never brought up the fact that george w. bush had been an alcoholic until 40. it would have hurt us, we knew it would have hurt us. when the stuff about h
very long years of george w. bush and dick cheney. part of the republican wisdom about what happened in 2008 is simply that john mccain wasn't disgusting enough. that john mccain wasn't willing to indulge that enraged batty old ladies of his audience who heard somewhere that obama is an arab. part of the republican establishment thinks the lesson of 2008 is john mccain was too decent. if you wallow with the birthers and he's a secret muslim folks, if you run your campaign out of the comment section of youtube videos about the panama canal and the muslim brotherhood taking over the state department, part of them thinks that's how you win. the question is are they right? >>> celebrating success instead of attacking and denigrating makes america strong. that's the right course for this country. his course is extraordinarily foreign. >> the course we're on right now is foreign to us. it changes america. >> this idea of criticizing and attacking success, of demonizing those in all walks of life who have been successful, is something which is so foreign to us, we simply can't understand it
strategy was all about. we're in the process now of canonizing george h.w. bush, but it was george h.w. bush who gave us the willy horton ads in 1988, and ronald reagan who has already achieved sainthood in the gop, he started this general campaign in 1980 in philadelphia, mississippi, and that's where the three civil rights workers were killed, and that was just, to me, such a reprehensible thing to do. i was good friends with the mother of andrew goodman, one of those civil rights workers who was murdered. and she died a couple years ago, and i'm still good friends with his brother, david goodman. that family never recovered from those murders. and to give aid and comfort to the people who killed that young man who was only 20 years old at the time, is just beyond the pale as far as i'm concerned. >> the republican party as a safe house for bigotry is strong terms and you're making the case for why you're using language that strong. i wonder, though, if as a matter of political practice, the country is also a safe house for that kind of bigotry. the thing that underlied that whole fr
you some surprising comments from former president george w. bush. he doesn't give many interviews and in an interview with the hoover institute, he says why. he said he wants to fade from public view and public life as much as it is possible for any former president. >> but i really don't want to be in the public eye anymore. and i feel a certain sense of liberation not being out there. >> you like it better. >> i really do. eight years was awesome. and i was famous and i was powerful, but i have no desire for fame and power anymore. >> the former president said part of his motivation in wanting to fade from the scene is not to be seen trying to interfere in any way the current president. >>> a warming atlantic ocean has taken its toll again on one of greenland's giant glaciers. a piece twice the size of the island of manhattan has broken free. scientists have been watching a crack in the glacier for years. nasa took a satellite photo as it started to break off days ago. two years ago a piece twice the size of this one broke off. scientists will be watching carefully again to see
in the correct way so you don't vote republican and stuff like that. >> i think george w. bush's history will judge him far better than the editorialists and the pundits. there are many things that george bush did that are quite admirable. >> the eight years was awesome. i was famous, powerful, but i have no desire for fame or power any more. >> eliot: it may have been awesome for you but not for us. is the fda begin to go act like the fbi? that's next. >> this court has proven to be the knowing, delighted accomplice in the billionaires' purchase of our nation. >> and you think it doesn't affect you? think again. if you have copd like i do you know how hard it can be to breathe and what that feels like. copd includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema. spiriva helps control my copd symptoms by keeping my airways open a full 24 hours. plus, it reduces copd flare-ups. spiriva is the only once-daily inhaled copd maintenance treatment that does both. and it's steroid-free. spiriva does not replace fast-acting inhalers for sudden symptoms. tell your doctor if you have kidney prob

made it to the white house? jimmy carter, george h. w. bush. both were one-termers. our best president? abe lincoln, career politician. franklin and teddy roosevelt is career politician i.c.e. harry truman, career poll didn't. ronald reagan? actor, but did he spend two terms as governor of california. the point is, being president is not like being america's ceo. for one thing, a private sector boss gives orders, then he fires people if they're not carried out. a president has some power, sure, but often hat to be the power to persuade the other two branches of government to go along with what he wants to do. it's called politics. it's tough, and it's tricky. so then why do we continue to believe it's so simple, even a ceo can do it? now, the good news here for mitt romney is that he actually was a governor of massachusetts. in fact, i hear he engineered a healthcare plan that covered 98% of residents. in fact, he could make that the center piece of his campaign, call it romney care. oh, yeah. never mind. anita. >> thank you, derek. if you want to respond to something derek says, wheth
campaign to distort and lie about. two republicans who disagree. former george w. bush arry fliesher. and also joining us, gloria borger. so i know you and a lot of republicans think romney should release his tax returns and the campaign is saying fairly or unfairly would be like handing ammunition to the obama campaign. do you buy it? >> i buy it. i don't think we're going to see any. i don't think any of the republicans think there is anything wrong that mitt romney has done. what we want is the deextraction to be over so we can get to the real issues, the big issues that the american people are interested in. this has become a ridiculous distraction and i do think it's taking a toll. i think there was nothing illegal or inappropriate that he has done. he is a well think man who has been successful and he should embrace that and we should gelt this over with, take the band-aid off, let's move on and let's start talking about the economy. let's start talking about jobs. we've been talking about this now for days and days and days. >> ari, what about that? it's not just among media t
. >> george w. bush has endorsed mitt romney. >> that eight years was awesome. i was famous and powerful. >> i was shocked by how quickly they made his romney endorsement into a campaign ad. >> i approve this message. >> boy, could things get any worse for mitt romney? >> let's get right to our panel. joy reed, an msnbc contributor and jonathan alter, an msnbc political analyst. good day to you both. joy, a week from today, mitt romney is in london, site of the olympics. less for the dressage, more for the fund raising. he'll be joining execs from barclays and hsbc embroiled in a money land laundering scandal. which is the candidate that hab hasn't been vetted? >> maybe what romney is trying to do is to show the conservative base he's not ashamed to be seen with hedge fund managers and other members of the 1%. this is sort of almost flaunting his 1% and it's terrible optics, but i really am starting to think that the romney strategy is we can withstand anything no matter how negative because they've hinged their strategy on they think people just want obama out. >> and they think that the econ

strategist for george w. bush mark mckenna join us "outfront" tonight. i want to play a clip of an impressive attack by ohio's own john boehner. let's take a listen. >> i think the president's attack on the private sector in america is exactly what's wrong with this administration. doesn't give a damn about middle class americans who are out there looking for work. what he's trying to do is distract the american people in order to win his own reelection. >> tell us how you really feel there, john. let's talk about the importance of ohio. take a look at the current cnn electoral map. in this scenario, obama seems likely to start with 247 electoral votes. romney expected to get 206. 85 are a toss-up. but suddenly ooeb's been five electoral votes of winning. roland, there's a reason obama has made eight trips to ohio so far this year. romney's made ten. what do you think president obama needs to do to win over the main street middle class voters in the buckeye state? >> actually if you go back to 2009, the two states he was immediately going to were ohio as well as north carolina. and when gover
back in 2000, george w. bush narrowly won this race by 537 votes in that state and gave him the election. in 2008, barack obama won florida and that was a pivotal race for him. i think in this election, florida could be a deciding point. you know, florida, ohio, and virginia, the three states everybody's focusing on. so if they can win florida, get the senior vote, get the latino vote, get the other constituencies, they can make a win in the election in the electoral college. >> hogan, let's talk about the senior vote for a second. the president will be trying to convince seniors in florida that mitt romney's plans will end medicare as we know it. mitt romney has said he supports phasing out the current medicare system,
to distort and lie about. more raw politics with two republicans who disagree. former george w. bush press secretary, ari fleischer, and also joining us gloria borger. so i know you and a lot of republicans think romney should release his tax returns and the campaign is saying fairly or unfairly, releasing more returns would be like handing more ammunition to the obama campaign. do you buy it? >> i absolutely buy that. i think it will be picked over, big things will be made. i don't think we're going to see anything new. i don't think any of the republicans calling for this think there is anything wrong that mitt romney has done. what we want is for the distraction to be over so we can get to the real issues, the big issues that the american people are interested in. this has become a ridiculous distraction and i do think it's taking a toll. again, i tell you i think there is absolutely nothing illegal or inappropriate that mitt romney has done. we're not going to learn anything new. he is a wealthy man who has been very successful. and he should embrace that. and we should get this over w
candidate, george w. bush and bill clinton, everybody else releases and obama but romney should get a pass? >> andrea: wool socks up to this point about -- >> bob: why doesn't romney do what everybody else does? you're covering up for romney. >> kimberly: you're covering up for obama. >> bob: have him put his tax returns out. coward and he won't do it. >> kimberly: whatever. erroneous. erroneous. >> bob: that was enjoyable. george zimmerman, the man accused of murdering trayvon martin. my good friend sean hannity spoke to him last night. you don't want to miss it. >> bashed my head to the concrete sidewalk. as soon as he broke my nose i started yelling for help. chances are, you're not made of money, so don't overpay for motorcycle insurance. geico, see how much you could save. do you have any idea where you're going ? wherever the wind takes me. this is so off course. nature can surprise you sometimes... next time, you drive. next time, signal your turn. ...that's why we got a subaru. love wherever the road takes you. male spirit present.trong it's the priceline negotiator. >>what? >>sorr

victim to safety. the story behind this escape. >> wow. >>> also this half hour, george w. bush opening up in a wide ranging interview. what does the former president mean when he says he crawled out of the swamp and he's not crawling back in. >> and later, iron mike tyson is hitting something new. the great white way. yes. you'll hear from the heavyweight legend getting ready for his broadway debut. stepping into a different kind of ring there. >> i just can't wait to see mike tyson at the tonys. he's going to be a big hit. get lots of awards for his performance. going to be something really, really nice out there. doing nice stuff. >> you do so many good impressions. >> i appreciate that. thank you kindly. we do get to serious news. >>> a big interview last night. george zimmerman says the events that unfolded the night he killed trayvon martin were part of what he says is god's plan. the former neighborhood watchman tells fox news he would not do anything differently that night. >> this is the first time zimmerman has spoken publicly about the shooting. he says he was not following m
's a fellow with the american enterprise institute and a former george w. bush speech writer. all right, guys. jay carney came out and said, well, he's got a lot on his plate. simon, you point out that 90% of the recommendations that the jobs council has already made to the president have, i guess, been implemented? is that the stat? >> yeah. there's a new report out last week that showed -- let's just remember what the jobs council was, right? lots of ceos and other leading officials. they met four times, they made a big report at the beginning of the year, 60 recommendations for the administration to follow. 54 have either been implemented or senate progress has been made. so i think it's done its job. there are six more meetings scheduled over the next 18 months, but for this year they wanted to get the recommendations out early in the year to affect the congressional process. the administration's been responsive to their actions and has made -- and i think we should be satisfied with the contribution the jobs council has made. meg here's my question to you then, marc. if the jobs council'
that development throughout the morning. >>> former president george w. bush used a rare interview to talk in depth about his post-presidential life. mr. bush told a think tank in dallas he would much rather focus on policy as opposed to politics. he called his eight years in the white house awesome and says he has no desire for fame or power anymore. >> i crawled out of the swamp, and i'm not crawling back in. and, you know, i'm interested in politics. i'm a serpt of mitt rsupporter romney. i hope he does well, but he doon well without me. >> the former president also said he wished his namesake tax cuts were no longer called the bush tax cuts. if they were anyone else's tax cuts there wouldn't be a debate about whether to let them expire. >>> as for the presidential race, mitt romney's campaign could be making an announcement any time now about the candidate's running mate. it's antrategic political decision. abc's jonathan karl reports on romney's new short list. >> reporter: who is he going to pick? that was the question to mitt romney again today. this time from a voter who wants a tea partier

in historical contest. we would be talking about how george w. bush broke the equipment record. >> peter: look at numbers in terps of ronald regan. jbush 137 and how we are at 7-- 270. >> that is an increase the rules of the campaign limits. it combined with the cost of the campaign. the bed rock has been putting limits on the amount of money given to the campaign to limit the corruption or appearance of corruption. but campaign costs are exploding. it norses a presidential candidate to spend more time raising money. >> peter: but this is a choice made by the individual president. there is a criticism that the president has not attended a job's counselmeeting and brought together 26 american leaders to talk about how to create jobs in america. but at the same time the capacity to go to fund raisers and people are giving $50 or $100,000 a person. are our proprietaries wrong? >> these are choices presidents make but it is the rules of the system. and so george bush broke thint's record and clinton broke the former bush's record. obama's records will - likely fall. public financing held down the
